NAP vs FIO match preview –
After a stinging loss to Sampdoria in their previous fixture, Napoli will next face the challenge from Fiorentina who would be coming into this game on the back of two successive wins.
The Neapolitans will come into this fixture with sheer aggression in a quest to get themselves back on winning ways. On the other hand, Fiorentina are undefeated at this point of time as they tore apart Chievo Verona by 6-1 and then in their previous game they took down Udinese 1-0.
Though Napoli would be banking on the fact that they are undefeated in their last 5 home matches against Fiorentina which is also a psychological advantage for them. They were prudent in the first two but a mulling loss against Sampdoria would have given a sleepless night.
But, with this game being played at Stadio San Paolo, the Napoli fans could well be in for a treat as the home side record against Fiorentina is magnificent with 31 wins 21 draws and 16 loss.

Gambling India Info Match Prediction Napoli vs Fiorentina –
This would be a hard-fought fixture which makes it very tough to pick a winner. Napoli would be out like an injured Lion and will look to hunt down their opponent in style. The home conditions might help Napoli and they could well be on the course of winning their third encounter of Seria A.
Napoli – Former Tottenham player Vlad Chiriches hasn’t recovered from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, and has been ruled out. While Raul Albiol is expected to partner Koulibaly at the back. Central-Midfielder Fabian Ruiz has recovered from a thigh strain and could start, while Simone Verdi’s knock means Mertens and Jose Callejon will battle for a place on the wing.
Fiorentina: First Choice goalkeeper Albin Lafont suffered a thigh strain in the last game where he was substituted against Udinese. He is still not 100%, and so it looks like a start for Bartlomiej Dragowski between the sticks. Elsewhere, while on-loan Marko Pjaca could start against the Naples.
